    This turned out amazing! I followed the directions and it’s probably the best non egg mug cake I’ve had yet!

    I was skeptical, because my first experience with mug cakes was a pasty, raw-tasting, gluey mess (prepared according to directions, I swear). This was wonderful! Even without Nutella. I think I'll try a spoonful of jam next time.

    Amazing! Incredibly simple to make and I had all the ingredients except for the hazelnut cream so I used Hershey’s chocolate syrup and it made it so moist and delicious!

    It is very good and fluffy, but I wished it was more of a chocolate flavor. I put Nutella and milk chocolate chips in the middle.

    Best mug cake I've ever tried!! the texture is so good and not as gooey as the other ones I've tried. It took around 2 minutes in my microwave.

    I’m not a huge dessert fan but was craving something sweet. This definitely hit the spot - super easy, quick and very good. Topped it with vanilla ice cream and it was perfect!

    This turned out great. I followed the recipe to the exact measurements. (As far as sugar goes I added the 2 plus a bit more)I added a few chocolate chips to mine. I had to adjust my cooking time because of my cup and microwave. But all in all, a great recipe for a little treat.

    It turned out fine, but I’ll reduce the cocoa powder next time. I found it too bitter Otherwise, it’s a lovely recipe 👌🏾

    used coconut oil instead of vegetable oil, chocolate chips instead of nutella, self-rising flour, and 2 tbsp sugar turned out slightly spongey and note to self: the coconut oil freezes immediately after putting in the milk

    Fantastic! My mom is allergic to Gluten so we used GLUTEN FREE flour and it was light ans fluffy :) (usually when we try Gluten Free desserts they are slightly heavy)

    Yummy and uncomplicated. I was not disappointed.
    Great I put it in for 85 secs though

    If you like chocolate, you’re going to love this. I would back off the cacao powder, and I’m a chocolate lover. Don’t pass up the opportunity to add the hazelnut spread. Really clever recipe.

    I microwaved it for 1 minute and it turned out amazing I will be making this over and over again to help with my cravings. 😍

    I had to cook it for 55 seconds longer in my microwave. The batter itself isn’t very flavourful, would be fantastic with Nutella if i had any.
